Mission

The mission of Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA) is to save homeless pets in Clark County. NSPCA provides shelter, care and finds loving new homes for dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals. Founded in 1982, NSPCA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. NSPCA does not receive any government funds, nor is it funded by any national SPCA – we rely entirely on the generosity of individuals and local businesses to help animals in need.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Nevada SPCA's mission is to save Southern Nevada's most vulnerable pets, inspire human companions to uphold the best possible care and to increase human animal bond through adoption, foster and preventative care. Our vision is to lead Southern Nevada into a future where every companion animal has a forever home and where pet parents have access to assistance for medical care, education and supplies so that the human-animal bond is unwavering. Like our mission and vision, our primary goals are to intake over 2000 dogs and cats each year and give them temporary shelter, needed medical care and then find them new loving homes. Our secondary goals are to provide assistance to pet owners to divert shelter intake of homeless animals and keep their animals in their homes through free or low cost services and to provide education to our community's pet owners to become better pet parents.

Nevada SPCA's primary strategy is to open our doors to as many homeless pets as we can each year through the acceptance of owner-surrendered animals, transfers from other shelters of animals with medical needs as well as intake and care for orphan kittens from the streets. This strategy includes continuous review of our facility and processes to grow our intake, constant collaboration with other animal rescue organizations to grow our impact and an aggressive marketing campaign to educate the community about our resources. Our secondary strategy is to provide free or low cost assistance to pet owners in need through our current Pet Pantry, and in the future, to provide low cost veterinary care including vaccinations and spay and neuter procedures.

Nevada SPCA is Southern Nevada's second largest animal shelter, with a staff of 22 skilled full-time employees including animal caregivers, veterinary technicians, adoption counselors, facility management and a communications team. We currently operate a 25,000 square foot facility with intake rooms, 63 dog kennels, multiple cat adoption rooms and a small pet adoption room. Our communications capabilities to promote our impact include a social media following of over 50,000 and weekly television and radio appearances to showcase our adoptable pets: Nevada SPCA is the most visible animal rescue organization in Las Vegas. We receive thousands of dollars each year in donations that we in turn use for both our shelter animals as well as use for our Pet Pantry.

Nevada SPCA was founded in 1982 and continues to find homes for an average of 2000 animals each year. Nevada SPCA found homes for 2203 animals in 2019. In 2020, we opened our doors to 1533 animals and found homes for 1461 animals. Our lifesaving rate (percentage of animals who leave our shelter with a positive outcome through adoption, owner return and transfer to our rescue partners) is 96.8%. Nevada SPCA started its Pet Pantry in November 2020 to assist pet owners in financial need during the economic crisis with free dog and cat food; we have helped over 300 households and over 1000 of their personal pets to date. To promote adoptions, Nevada SPCA partners with a number of business partners and foundations to sponsor fee-waived adoption events including Senior for Seniors, a program where older pets ages 8 and up are free to human seniors ages 65 and up.
